Surprisingly, no drinks today, so I set off early with a clear head, after noting carefully what needs to be done on 5th January. I ventured to the bohemian part of town and bought Viv a gift at Three Second Goldfish. I will say no more as she is sure to read this before tomorrow morning. Then to Whitcoulls for a card. The queue was disturbingly long, so it was a pity the didn't have the books I wanted too. I'll have to buy them in the sales... Then it was off to Lambton Quay to record the camel story. But by now I'm heading for home on the 3 o'clock train and eleven days out of the office.
